Actress Brittany Murphy may have been poisoned to death, New Reports reveal

BRITAIN-SIN-CITY-FRANK-MILLER 2If you’ve seen Sin City and Just Married, then you probably know who this Hollywood actress is.

A new lab report has been released which suggests Brittany Murphy could have died from poison, as high levels of heavy metals have been found in the actress’s blood, tissue and hair.

American actress Brittany Murphy died in 2009 at the age of 32. The cause of her death was thought to have been accidental, caused by multiple drug intoxication, pneumonia and anemia. Brittany’s husband, Simon Monjack, died as a result of the exact same causes five months later, which may not be so coincidental after all.

The ‘8 Mile’ actress’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, sued the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office and the Los Angeles Police Department, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He wanted them to re-open an investigation into her death and get further toxicology reports, the lawsuit claimed the coroner’s department of “failure to conduct toxicology tests on the specimens”, as Bertolotti thinks, “his daughter’s death was incorrectly determined to have been allegedly caused by pneumonia and anemia.”

The lawsuit wasn’t granted but Angelo reportedly won the release of her hair, blood and tissues for independent testing, according to The Examiner.

A new toxicology report was carried out by Carlson Company in Colorado and they found the presence of heavy metals, something the LA office didn’t look for. The website quotes the lab report:

“Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [The World Health Organization] high levels . If we were to eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent.”

Heavy metals are commonly found in rat poisons and at the time of her death Murphy experienced symptoms of someone who has been poisoned with heavy metal, including: headache, dizziness, abdominal cramps, tremors, sweating, disorientation, coughing, wheezing, congestion, and pneumonia.

Bertolotti just wants to clear his daughter’s name as he tells The Examiner, “Vicious rumors, spread by tabloids, unfairly smeared Brittany’s reputation, my daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance and in fear for their lives. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”

    Like Kurt Cobain once said, ‘just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they ain’t out to get you.’ Seems particularly true for Mrs Murphy
